Emergency reception

If you are visiting the emergency outpatient department, please come to the emergency reception.
Please be aware of the following points when visiting the emergency outpatient department.

  • If a critically ill patient is transported by ambulance, priority will be given to the critically ill patient, so the order of examination may be delayed and you may have to wait.
  • Since we give top priority to critically ill patients, we may not be able to see you even if you visit us directly.
  • If you have an illness that does not require an emergency medical examination, please visit us during normal consultation hours.
  • Since the doctor on duty sees the patient, the doctor may not be a specialist.This is an emergency medical examination only.
  • If we determine that you have a symptom that cannot be treated at our hospital, we may refer you to another hospital for examination.

emergency outpatient care

  1. After the reception, the nurse will judge the degree of urgency (triage)
  2. We will examine patients in order of severity
    *Even if you are transported by ambulance, if the degree of urgency is determined to be low, the examination will be delayed.
  3. For patients with a high degree of urgency, doctors from the emergency department and each specialized department are in charge.
    Non-urgent patients will be treated by the on-duty doctor of the day
  4. Tests for illnesses and injuries that require immediate treatment
    If you do not need immediate treatment even if you have symptoms, we will not perform the test.
    You will have to visit the general outpatient department again on weekdays.


  • Even if there is no abnormality in the emergency outpatient examination, a serious illness may be hidden, so if symptoms persist, please see a general outpatient on weekdays.
  • As a result of the examination performed at the emergency outpatient department, abnormalities may be revealed at a later date, and the doctor in charge may contact you, so please inform the emergency reception desk of your emergency contact information.
  • Since our hospital accepts tours and practical training for students and paramedics, we may participate in medical treatment, so we ask for your understanding and cooperation.
